FTFY (I know there’s a couple screws & wires, but c’mon, let me have this joke)

Looks kind’a stressful.

Yeah ,this is crap, BB keeps pushing it every few months. The plans can’t be adapted to a CNC, and the guy was a dick about it when I asked about a more raw format I could convert. Who the hell wants to cut parts out with a bandsaw in 2018? Either sell the kit ready to assemble, or open the plans so someone can make a cnc-cuttable set. But these plans are useless.

What is your problem with laser?

I was thinking I’d like to use a nail file and hard cheese.

Woodworkers. The word you’re looking for is “woodworkers.”

If you really want a challenge, attach it to a safe and then hide it in Beschizza’s wall.

I love Matthias Wandel’s stuff on you tube. He also build a bunch of his own power tools out of wood.

He’s a fun, idiosyncratic woodworker, and I learn a lot from him, even if I’m never going to build a wooden bandsaw myself… :grinning:

looks like a wooden emeter reader from the waldorf scientology school.

People who enjoy doing woodworking on a bandsaw, maybe?

@timstellmach beat me to it!
